Title (EN) VEHICLE INPUT DEVICE
(FR) DISPOSITIF D'ENTRÉE DE VÉHICULE
Abstract:
(EN) A vehicle input device has an operating part (150) arranged within the passenger compartment and a signal processing part (172) that processes signals input through the operating part (150). The device includes a movable support mechanism that supports the operating part (150) to move between a distant position away from an operator and a nearby position close to the operator, a motor (210) for generating a drive force to displace the operating part (150), a control part (174) for controlling the motor (210), and an operation intention detector (220) for detecting an operator's intention to operate the operating part (150). The control part (174) controls the motor (210) to displace the operating part (150) into the nearby position if the operator's operation intention is detected by the operation intention detector (220).
(FR) La présente invention concerne un dispositif d'entrée de véhicule ayant une partie de manœuvre (150) conçue à l'intérieur du compartiment et une partie de traitement du signal (172) qui traite les signaux entrés via la partie de manœuvre (150). Le dispositif comprend un mécanisme de support mobile supportant la partie de manœuvre (150) pour un déplacement entre une position distante de l'opérateur et une position proche de l'opérateur, un moteur (210) permettant de générer une force d'entraînement pour déplacer la partie de manœuvre (150), une partie de commande (174) pour commander le moteur (210) et un détecteur d'intention de manœuvre (220) pour détecter l'intention d'un opérateur de manœuvrer la partie de manœuvre (150). La partie de commande (174) commande le moteur (210) pour déplacer la partie de manœuvre (150) dans la position proche si l'intention de manœuvre de l'opérateur est détectée par le détecteur d'intention de manœuvre (220).
